When Sophie has to visit her mother at her sanctuary for bonobos, she’s not
thrilled to be there. Then Otto, an infant bonobo, comes into her life, and for the
first time, she feels responsible for another creature.
But peace does not last long for Sophie and Otto. When an armed revolution
breaks out in the country, the sanctuary is attacked, and the two of them must
escape unprepared into the jungle. Caught in the crosshairs of a lethal conflict,
they must struggle to keep safe, to eat, and to live.
